CLEAN ENERGY CHOICE

With Clean Energy Choice, residential customers have a choice to buy more renewable energy from the City of Arlington. What is renewable energy you ask? Renewable energy is generated from wind, solar, bioenergy and water resources. Did you know that today 17% of your home’s electricity comes from renewable energy and it is required by the State of Minnesota to do so. This new program will replace the City’s current Green Power program and is a revised version of the existing Clean Energy Choice program. By signing up for Clean Energy Choice, it’s a quick and easy way to ensure you are increasing your renewable energy source for only a few extra dollars a month. The main benefits of the program are as follows:

  • Low Cost – A fixed monthly fee of $1 per month for 50% renewable energy,

                                                                     $2 per month for 75% renewable energy, or

                                                                     $3 per month for 100% renewable energy.

  • The program and pricing is simple – the monthly fee is fixed and not based on energy usage. 
  • It’s easy to sign up for the program—go to the website https:/www.cleanenergychoice.com/arlington/
  • Subscription is monthly and you can cancel at any time!

The Clean Energy Choice program currently is only for residential customers. MMPA is working on developing a new renewable program option for commercial and industrial customers.  If you are a commercial customer currently on the Green Power Program, you will remain on that program. If you have any questions or want to sign up for Clean Energy Choice please call the City Office at (507) 964-2378.
